Terrible Customer Service My wife and I walked in and we were offered to pick a table as it was pretty much deserted. We sat and we had a look at the menu and then we waited and we waited. The staff were walking around,...More

Limited choice on this part of Sliema seafront. Attractive external architecture but cavernous dull interior. Service was good on the two occasions we used the place. Menu pretty basic - mostly pasta and burger fare. The rabbit stew was a local speciality and was good...More

Restaurant has a stunning view to look out on but having that didn’t correlate inside Staff were nice but not personal, more like a military feel which isn’t exactly desirable in a restaurant. We came for breakfast before we got a bus back to the...More

Mid week lunch as a couple enjoying an open view of the sea. Very laid back atmosphere. As a starter the focaccia and for mains pasta. A very large portion of rabbit liver with the tagliatelle and the garganelli with chicken, shrimps and sundried tomatoes....More

We ended up visiting iL Fortizza because the restaurant we were aiming for was full. It is a slightly strange place - a sports bar come restaurant set inside a circular historic defensive fort. Probably good sea views during the day. The menu is quite...More

I agree with Phil, but worth the effort between the food and view. It made you want to stay longer and relax. I'm back in MI and it's 62 degrees today. If you're there soak it up and relax and enjoy the sun and fresh air.
